UK car production rose by 15.7% in November compared with a year earlier, the first increase in more than a year, industry figures have shown.
There were 112,948 cars made last month, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said.
It put the rise down to the continuing impact of the car scrappage scheme and increased stability in major European car markets.
But the SMMT warned that next year would be “tough” for manufacturers.
So far this year, 914,117 cars have been made, which is down 34.4% on the same point a year ago.
The figures for commercial vehicle production were less encouraging. Output fell to 9,186 in November, down 16.2% on a year earlier.
